The most expensive set of extension tubes you can buy are . . . quite simply experience with the least expensive tubes you can buy!

Duct tape and cardboard tubes produce the same results as anything else -- the very minor difference is in convenience of use (PK vs. PK/A) after you understand what you're doin' with 'em. Auto focus is a distraction at best.

[And if you know what you're doin' and why, diagonal-cut cardboard tubes can even be used as tilt lens accessories - try to find one of THOSE on eBayy!]

Ok, then lets say K series... where can I find these? Only Ebay?
Ebay or Buy & Sell New & Used Cameras ? Canon, Nikon, Hasselblad, Leica & More - If you go ebay just don't go for the cheapest ones, get a set that has the lever usually called 'auto' though not all the time.

If you don't like the 'bay give KEH a call.
